The producers had said the acceptability of the movie proved that the film resonated with people from diverse cultures all over the world.

The statement read, “While this is being celebrated by Nigerians at home and abroad, the acceptability of it from people around the world with different cultural backgrounds and beliefs proves beyond words that tells a universal story that every human across the world relate to.

“It is also noteworthy to state that the movie in a great way creates an inclusiveness of both male and female character traits, bringing to light the fine thin line between lust and love, hate and resentment, illusion etc.”

Afolayan, on his Instagram page, thanked the movie fans for their referrals and reviews.
